The ImproVables, Sun Lakes’ very own improv troupe, is all decked out in new lavender shirts and excited to perform in several upcoming shows.

The show they’re calling April Fools’ Eve is set for March 31 at Sun Lakes Country Club. Tickets for this event will include dinner.

The next two shows will require the group to move a little further from their home base. Solera, on South Mountain Blvd. in Chandler, has invited them to perform at an April 24 show. This is a closed show, available only to Solera residents. Then the group will head to Chris Ridge Senior Center in Phoenix for a 1:00 p.m. show on April 30.

The ImproVables have been together for three years and have performed in Sun Lakes and a variety of other locations.
